Glasgow Science Festival: Exploring Data - Examine and Predict Election Results
This event is explores how basic concepts learned in maths and statistics are applied within the social sciences to answer important questions, such as who voted for Brexit and if a second referendum were to be held how would people vote? Using basic principles of maths and stats pupils will have the opportunity to work with real British Elections Survey data using our online application to look and the characteristics of voters and link these attributes to vote intention. We will discuss why polls appear to sometimes get it wrong, and what ways pupils should question data they hear about in the media.
Date: Thur 6 & Fri 7 June
Time: 09:45-11:45; 12:30-14:30
Venue: University of Glasgow, Wolfson Medical Bld
